School Messenger Notifications Print
Monday, October 09 2017 08:14

Washington Schools uses a notification system called School Messenger for weather and other school alerts. Parents who have correctly entered their information into PowerSchool (usually as part of student registration) will be notified using email addresses and SMS text messages.

 

SMS messages do require each cell phone number to "opt-in" in order to receive text messages. If you have not yet replied with a Y or YES to 67587, we encourage you to do so in order to receive SMS text messages. SMS Text Opt-In Flyer

 

If you would like to customize which messages you receive, users can manage their notification preferences by clicking on the Infocenter link on the left side when logged into their Powerschool Parent Account. Please see the attached sign up letter for instructions on how to log in to School Messenger and update your notification preferences. You will need to sign up with the email address you have entered in your Powerschool Parent Account to ensure all of your students are linked to your School Messenger login.    School Messenger Sign Up Letter

 

Other individuals who would not have their information on file with the school can sign up using the following link. Again, this is not necessary for anyone already in our PowerSchool system. https://asp.schoolmessenger.com/washingtonk12ia/subscriber


Notifications will continue to be posted on our website and on local media stations as we have done in the past.
